Plaque of marble with a relief of Zeus and damage on the right side (52 cm x 24 cm). Found at the northern foot of the Hill of Nymphs, now in Epigraphical Museum of Athens (inv. 8738). This group of contributors may or may not form an ongoing association.

The contributors (eranistai) dedicated this to Zeus Philios (“Protector of Friendship”) when Hegesias was civic leader (archon).
